This collection contains nine papers directed at the development of public and private partnerships in urban shoreline restoration and efforts from Boston to Hawaii to Europe. Papers consider the challenges and opportunities for developing urban shorelines and focus on balancing public rights and private development along urban waterfronts. Conflicts and opportunities among recreational uses of urban coasts are also examined. Descriptions of two success stories—Coney Island, New York and the Chicago Lake Front—are provided.
